The Mind & Life Institute is pleased to announce the upcoming move of its headquarters to Charlottesville, Virginia. Effective in May 2016, the MLI office will relocate from Hadley, Massachusetts to Charlottesville. Susan Bauer-Wu, Mind and Life’s new president, sees “springtime as an ideal time to begin a new chapter in Mind and Life’s distinguished history in convening and catalyzing interdisciplinary and cross-institutional conversations and science that address profound issues that matter in the world.” With the relocation, Mind and Life will have greater proximity to Washington, DC and to a number of academic colleagues deeply engaged in this work. We are also excited to be adding new members to our team in Charlottesville.
Mind and Life is recruiting and accepting applications for several staff positions to join the new office in Charlottesville, Virginia, starting spring 2016. We are seeking talented individuals who are inspired by Mind and Life’s mission and embody the values of self-awareness and compassion that are foundational to our work.
